Today we’d like to introduce you to Nadia Danielle.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Nadia. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I realized I loved the beauty industry when everyone around me made it very clear that I was happiest when giving makeovers and shopping at Sephora. Brows really became a focus when I finished school and revived my esthetician license. Luckily, it became a focus for everyone since that was the beginning of the Kardashian era. I started working as a benefit brow gal and quickly gained a following. I then started The Brow Boss. I needed a place to call my own where I could expand my business and show my creativity. I’ve been playing with makeup since I was a child. I hold Halloween close to my heart because it allows me to think outside the box and turn makeup into an art form. Thankfully, with the help of Instagram, I am able to attract new clients and like-minded artists by showcasing my tutorials and Halloween creations.
Has it been a smooth road?
There has been plenty of challenges along the way. Especially, since I started The Brow Boss at 23. It’s not easy running a business and trying to have a social life. Nothing worthwhile is easy. That’s the first thing to understand. Remember that you are a service provider. Clients will come back to you based on the work you do and how they felt leaving your business. Leave your ego at the door and teach everything you can to your employees. Make work a fun place to be. My right-hand woman is my longtime best friend, Lina. She was made to do this for many reasons, not just because she has the most incredible eyebrows. Clients love her, and she’s great at what she does. These are important qualities when adding members to your team. Outsource what you can’t do yourself. Preserve your energy to do what you do well. If you are a workaholic like myself, you need to learn to not burn yourself out. Having a successful business isn’t a race, it’s a marathon.
We’d love to hear more about The Brow Boss.
Halloween has really opened doors for me. It gave our customers a chance to see what I can do. I can create anything from a sexy deer to a bloody zombie. With the beauty industry booming the way it has, it can be easy to be overshadowed. I now let my work speak for itself. I’m an artist and that’s a gift I will not let go to waste. I’m most proud when I get feedback that I’ve inspired someone. Growing up, I looked up to so many hardworking and creative people. This is my time to be the person I once looked up to.
We’re interested to hear your thoughts on female leadership – in particular, what do you feel are the biggest barriers or obstacles?
Having a female dominant industry can be tough. Drama, drama, drama. Drama is also best friends with attitude, ego, and periods. All you can do is control your own behavior. Know that you are lucky every day to do what you love and nothing is more important.
